FAIRBANKS — Two of the 12 men wanted by Alaska State Troopers on active felony warrants have been arrested and were arraigned Wednesday in Fairbanks District Court.
Robert Tyrone Gentleman III was arrested Tuesday night after fleeing from Alaska State Troopers in North Pole. According to a criminal complaint, troopers tried to stop a white Chevrolet truck at Nordale and Peede roads after noticing its only license plate was packed with snow even though it was 50 degrees and no snow was on the rest of the truck. The driver, later identified as Gentleman, continued driving but soon came to a dead end on Meadowrue Road. Gentleman spun a broadie and covered his face with his arm as he sped past the trooper.
Gentleman continued at high speeds as he turned onto Peede Road, Brock Road and Lee Lane before coming to another dead end at Zinski Lane. Gentleman put his hands outside the window and the trooper told him to stay seated until another officer could arrive. Gentleman said he wouldn’t identify himself until he was in handcuffs and told nearby residents to record the incident because he thought the trooper wanted to shoot him, according to the complaint.
Gentleman then turned and started to smoke out of a glass pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine. Gentleman surrendered to North Pole police when they arrived on scene.
On the way to Fairbanks Correctional Center, Gentleman told troopers he used the glass pipe with an attachment to smoke dabs, which is an oil concentrate of THC.
Gentleman was wanted on a no-bail warrant for failing to report to jail to serve his time for a failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer conviction. Gentleman also was wanted on a $10,000 cash performance bond for a pending burglary, theft, assault and criminal mischief case.
Jason A. Starkey was arrested at 5:58 p.m. Tuesday after troopers contacted him at the Holiday gas station on South Cushman Street. Details of Starkey’s arrest were not available Wednesday.
Starkey was wanted on a $15,000 unlawful evasion warrant for failing to return to North Star Center after his shift at Denny’s restaurant
Jan. 23, 2016. Starkey had been at the halfway house serving a sentence for felony driving under the influence and second-degree failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer.
